Anxious Animation
Various Artists

This ain't no Pixar. This is ain't no Disney. This ain't no foolin' around.

Anxious Animation presents six contemporary film artists who take us into surreal worlds of delirium and paranoia...

The reigning proponent of cut-and-paste, Lewis Klahr nourishes intensely private visions on the compost heap of collective unconscious through old magazines, comic books, and cocktail iconography.

Complex, poetic, and pervaded by themes of loss, Janie Geiser simultaneously creates and deconstructs fantasies through doll-like figurines, cut-outs, and found objects in her cryptic narratives.

Jim Trainor's handmade animations explore the inner lives of animals that appear strangely self-aware even as they instinctually copulate, feed, fight, kill and die.

The Bay Area collective of Rodney Ascher, Syd Garon, and Eric Henry conjure diabolical visions with digital savvy, accompanied by the manic music of Buckethead and DJ Q-Bert.
